After Spain, France will also allow the entry of Albanians who have been vaccinated. But unlike the Spanish state, which also recognizes Chinese vaccines, the French will not consider them.
Tirana International Airport has announced that France, from today, on June 9, 2021, allows the entry of Albanian passengers with biometric passports, who have been vaccinated Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson, and are equipped with PCR test.
France allows the entry of Albanian travelers with biometric passports, only if they have been vaccinated and travelers also submit the PCR test of the last 72 hours or Antigen of the last 48 hours.
Vaccines accepted from France are those recognized by the European Medicines Agency (EMA): Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson.
The vaccination test is valid if it allows the completion of a full-time vaccination to be confirmed, namely:
- 2 weeks after the 2nd injection for dual injection vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca);
- 4 weeks after injection for single injection vaccines (Johnson & Johnson);
- 2 weeks after injection for vaccines in people with a history of Covid-19 (only 1 injection required).
France considers Albania in the list of orange countries, ie with a low risk of infection.
For those who have not been vaccinated, restrictive measures continue to remain in place. Unvaccinated citizens must travel only for essential reasons (to go to the spouse, or parents to travel to children with a residence permit in France, and students for study purposes)
This category also travels with the PCR test of the last 72 hours or Antigen of the last 48 hours, it is said in the TIA announcement.
Yesterday it was announced that Spain opened its doors to all Albanian citizens with biometric passports who have taken both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine. Doses of vaccines known to the Spanish authorities include Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Janssen, Sinopharm and Sinovac-CoronaVac.
